Re: January - I was adopted / fostered

  • Hi!

    I was adopted as an infant, closed adoption. 

    My birth family - my mother doesn't want any contact and I'm ok with that.  I actually talk with her sister some, which is nice.  

    Being adopted - My mother never wanted to raise kids, it was just expected of her.  So that's a big part.  It wasn't a huge deal since all of us kids are adopted, but it was issue after issue with a parent who didn't want to parent. I'm not sure which issues are which.  

    Any tips - make dang sure you want to be a parent, please!

    Thanks for sharing. I am sorry that your mom who adopted you didn't want to have kids but did because that's what was expected. That's got to be hard.

  • @SaphireSweetie88 - yeah, it's not fun for sure.  Most of us turned out ok, but two siblings are interesting for lack of nicer terms.
